See here for the list of codecs that Rockbox currently supports (at least as at July2006)
WMA is currently not one of them (DRM'd or otherwise). I don't know if any progress has been made for a WMA decoder in Rockbox. Note that even if/when WMA support is added to Rockbox it will still not ever be able to play DRM (Digital Rights Management i.e. copy protected) WMA files.

Many thanks for the tip about the need to upgrade the firmware twice. I did that and rockbox now works fine. It took me some time to fathom out that I needed to press A-B twice to get anything to speak. So far it looks real good.
I notice that rockbox does not seem to play WMA music files which the native iriver firmware does play. Is that a rockbox limitation or am I missing some settings?
I know this is going to sound stupid and I didn't believe it myself when
I heard about it, but try doing the firmware upgrade again. My friend as
a US Iriver H320 and no matter what he did, Rockbox wouldn't boot, even
after the firmware upgrade. I wonder whether the firmware upgrade
aborted for some reason - he is also blind and didn't have sighted
assistance after the upgrade (a sighted person told him it did seem to
be upgrading though). Anyway, despite my misgivings, he tried the
firmware upgrade again and it came up into Rockbox fine. I still don't
understand why, but there you have it.
